My niece was given news today that no parent ever wants to hear….

“It’s time to prepare for the end”

Two months is too little

They let him go

They had no sudden healing.

To think that providence would take a child from his mother while she prays….

it’s appalling


Who told us we’d be rescued?

What has changed

and why should we be saved from nightmares.

We’re asking why this happened

to us who have died to live

Its unfair…..


This is what means  to be held

How is feels when the Sacred is torn from your life

and you survive.

This is what it is to be loved

and to know

that the promised was when everything fell

You’d be held…

Please pray with me that my niece and her family will be held during this difficult time.   Hug your little ones and thank God for each day.

Ashlee, you will be amazed at what you can live through, even when you may not want to.

  1. Wow, how tragic. My thoughts are with Ashley and her family. :(

  2. Oh, I'm SO sorry! There is nothing quite so heartbreaking as losing your newborn. I hope they can find some support near them, wherever they live. - one who's gone through it


Thanks for letting me know you're listening! Your comments mean so much!
